Hi im new have a question! Stocking suggestions?

Hi I'm
John from England, I have a 100l tank currently with 5 zebra danios, I am interested in introducing some more life in there, I was considering some Sakura shrimp possibly some snails and some new fish, tetras perhaps. Does anyone have any advice or additions for this proposed set up? I'd love any advice, thanks!

Welcome to AA!

The shrimp and snails should be just fine. You could easily add a dozen fw shrimp and a few snails without much effect on bioload.

Most tetras would work well with the danios... some cardinals, neons, glowlights, or blackskirts would all work great, as would many others. Do you have a specific color that you like? I think you could add somewhere between 8-15 of them, depending on what species you decide upon.

Is the tank cycled yet? How long has it been setup? You may want to wait awhile before adding anything new to the tank. Are you testing your water? Posting your readings for ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, and pH would help determine if the tank is ready for more fish.
